HANOVER—The Williams men's squash team dropped its final dual match of the 2012-2013 season on Wednesday night in a 6-3 decision to Dartmouth.
Taylor Foehl was the first Eph to earn a point in the number three position. Foehl dropped his first game but recovered nicely to win in four games.
Michael Petrick gave Williams a 2-1 lead through the first three matches with a five game win at number six. Petrick lost his first game but came back and won his second 11-9 only to lose his third 12-10. Petrick cruised in the fourth game and then scraped out the fifth 11-9.
Nick Marks earned a decisive three game victory at number two, never giving his opponent a chance to grow comfortable on court.
Williams led 3-2 in matches when Jack Ervasti came back to force a fifth game at number five. Ervasti held 10-8, 11-10, and 12-11 leads in the fifth but was unable to close it out. Ryan Eagan lost in four games quickly after Ervasti's match to give Dartmouth its fifth point.
"I'm proud of how everybody played today and I think it bodes well for Nationals," said Marks.
Williams' only remaining team matches will come at the National Championship in two weeks, hosted by Yale. Three individuals, Nick Marks, Taylor Foehl, and Alec Greaves-Tunnell will travel to Bowdoin this weekend for the inaugural DIII Individual Championships.
